*What is tetanus?

Tetanus is a bacterial disease that can be caught not only by stepping on a rusty nail, as is popularly believed, but also by contact with soil, dust, mud and excrement (faeces) of animals and of humans, or by an animal bite. If the bacteria causing the disease comes into contact with an open wound, it can be fatal. Tetanus attacks the muscles to reach the nerves and affect the entire nervous system, which can be extremely painful. The first muscles usually affected are those of the jaws, which become stiff and “lock”. It is for this reason that tetanus is also called “lockjaw” in English. Prevention and control of tetanus: Tetanus can be prevented by vaccination. Teenagers and adults should be given a booster dose every 10 years.
